Sheriff Paul C. May has released the following information:
Re: Barricaded Man Apparently Kills Self
On April 27, 2011, at approximately 5:50 p.m., deputies were dispatched to 3746 NW 16 Avenue, Okeechobee Florida, in reference to a man that had barricaded himself inside his home, after an apparent domestic dispute.
The victims of the domestic dispute were able to escape from the house and advised neighbors, who contacted the Sheriff’s Office.
At approximately 6:00 p.m., members of the Special Response Team(SRT) and Crisis Negotiation Team(CNT) were called to the scene and learned that the suspect had threatened suicide. SRT members secured the area around the house while CNT members established a command post to negotiate with the subject.
Attempts were made to call the subject via cell phone, with no response. After several attempts to communicate failed, entry was made into the home, where the subject was found deceased in the garage area of the home.
The subject has been identified as:
Michael P. Shaw
W/M; DOB: 12/24/59
The victims were transported to Raulerson Hospital and treated for their injuries.
The exact cause of death will be determined by the Medical Examiner’s Office. This case is still under investigation.
